The City of Boston announced that it’s ended its bid to host the 2024 Olympics.

Shortly after the surprise announcement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti re-stated his wish to resume talks with the U.S. Olympic Committee on the possibility of bringing the 2024 Games to Southern California.

Boston was the U.S. Olympic Committee’s first choice and today’s announcement has thrown the bid process into flux.

Angelenos, do you want to see Los Angeles hosting the 2024 Games? The last time the city played host to the Olympics was in 1984.
